Hello friends! As a reminder, we take reports very seriously, and try to respond to them within 24 hours (there's just too of us, and sometimes we get busy).

Please report! We'd rather have too many than have you uncomfortable in this space. We will enforce our CoC with joy and vigor.

Coming back from the void to ask for takes on Star Trek Discovery. I dropped off early on bc it seemed like the writers were going to use Tilly as Sheldon-In-Space.

How did this go - positive autism representation or stereotypes for comedy?

part of me wants to have a twitter account again, just so that i can interact with the dozen or so people whose feeds i'm following through rss

on a scale of apples to oranges, how much of a trashfire is birdsite nowadays? are they actually enforcing community guidelines?

Starting the pilot. I'm only 8 minutes in, but middle-aged & black are two very underrepresented characteristics in superheroes.

Shout out to all the people with "Face ID is insecure!" hot takes who are now uploading their selfies to that Google painting thing.

I'm up to episode 25 of -
They've fan-pitched two versions of a Boba Fett movie and I love both ideas
-after RotJ, it's like Smokin' Aces as lots of bounty hunters try to claim the armor so they can be the next Boba Fett

I don't think I've ever opened a Kindle book and seen an average read time over 30 hours before.

Finally started reading Oathbringer this morning... and promptly realized I'll need to alternate it with other books to keep my TBR pile from grinding to a standstill.

So I also started The Black Tides of Heaven this morning. :-)
